A day full of goodies

I’m one of those people who are usually organised when it relates to university studies. I research, collate and print anything that will equip me for the coming semester. La Trobe University’s ‘Writers in Action’ unit was no exception. Well . . . I thought I was organised until day one. We all gathered at the Bendigo Town Hall for our morning session. I was overwhelmed with all the information that Sue had delivered in a space of a couple of hours. I don’t know if my inability to comprehend it all was due to the fact that I was sitting in one the most magnificent buildings of its era – or possibly my body was caffeine deficient.

Can you guess where I'm sitting?

Each student was given information packs that included the festival program, premium pass, timetables, pamphlets and a lollypop! Everything was in this pack. A lady handing out the packs soon approached me and I half expected her to pull out a set of steaks knives but instead she asked, “Did you get a T-shirt?”

The all-important, Writer’s in Action/Bendigo Writer’s Festival T-shirt that we had to wear to all the festival events. That meant five days in the same T-shirt with no washing facilities. Yuck! Well, I figured that I’ll be in the company of other students and we would all end up smelling the same. Needless to say, questions were raised in the room as I sat quietly trying to envision the possible outfits I could incorporate my ‘Large’ sized T-shirt with. All I could imagine was my huge T-shirt could be pulled off as a dress – maybe with leggings?
